of washington d.c., for example, when it first came and from the city council decided to say they were going to pass a law because he was going to disrupt sort of the traditional model in terms of how taxis are regulated across the city. he suddenly saw this kind of clash between the old world and the new world in terms of disruption. at the end, they resorted a campaign an uprising by the people of the district of columbia and now it operates air. a lot of the people, the actors at the city level also has unhealthy relationships try to preserve the status quo. i think it's impossible import me when picking leaders, we elect leaders able to embrace to elegy to embrace the future rather than try to protect the status quo in the name of jobs than in the name of a lot of other areas around procurement. >> when i was last in academic, i think i should say one of the strongest defenders of the status quo is academia. since we are here at wayne state, in an academic institution, i think it would be useful to pick up on the point to look at our graduate degrees structures intersect but to me of the
that kind of pressure of while at the same time reading back the federal? >> let me talk first about affordability proposal. what governor ryan has cities we should take the $25, $25 million in former funds that go out through title i to low income students and to ida for special needs students, former funds yes not, contrary to what jon said, cutting, and make them portable. being they would follow will -- follow out of both children to a district or charter school or enable them to enroll in a tutoring program or take courses online. this step would do three things immediately. first it would render irrelevant a host of existing regulations on use of title i funds in particular that burden school districts in various ways, constrain innovation, just make their lives more difficult, drive-up administrative costs. secondly it would put the federal government firmly behind the principle that should be used to empower student, not to our sluggish and dangers district bureaucracy. third, it would eliminate an obstacle, -- and that obstacle has been the lack of affordability through fede
similar but truman began his career working at a bank, working in kansas city. his roommate for the first year was arthur eisenhower, eisenhower's oldest brother. they live together in the same room. the same rooming house. been back there is a document that is in the war papers and i don't know how many historians have seen this one but it was a message in effect being relayed to eisenhower through his older brother from harry truman who was then a senator in missouri and had not been elevated to the vice presidency yet and had and it was about 1943 emma before the political year began. this is from the u.s. senator of missouri to be commander of the european forces, the supreme allied institution of forces. you are the inevitable successor of franklin roosevelt and as it turns out harry truman finds himself in a role like andrew johnson after the american civil for somebody who has been dropped into this natural succession. >> unfortunately we could probably go for another hour and we'll have 150 questions. we have one minute left. you get 15 seconds of it and we will give our panel is
keep records of how people have adding averages today. this city will be celebrating in a sense its first return to major league baseball finals in washington, and get every morning you can read how players are doing. this morning is already telling have a stock market is doing. within 10 minutes of its opening we have ability to judge how its numbers compared to yesterday and a week ago, a month ago. there are any number of examples how we keep records of how we are doing. are we doing better or are we doing worse? yet we have failed over the years to keep the same kind of calibration about how we're doing over the most important constituency all of us acknowledge and admit, and that is our children. how are they doing in our country, and howard are they doing compared to others around the world, and that we doing a better job? are we celebrating in of the victories that have been made over the years and improving the quality of life of children? if not why aren't we doing better in certain areas? this is an idea that's been a long time coming to have that once a year, to build a g
the teacher unions, the city and state, on lobbying in the state. that was the first time that ever happened. i don't think it'll probably ever happen again and, you know, going back 25 years this is one year in a blip. there is money going into advocacy around education reform. i think those of us who are doing it would love to see, um, the amount sort of match what people perceive are out there. i think finish. >> that's a fundraising plea? >> well, it's actually more of a dynamic sort of conspiracies about how much money is flying around. actually, in all honesty, makes us seem like we're more connected to money than we actually are. diane ravitch tweets about, you know, financial aspects of what things that i'm working on, it always ends up making me more relevant than i was before she did it. it's sort of, um, because it takes a while, um, for the official filings that you file to show how much you spent. and when people are claiming you're spending more than you are, you're sort of given more credit than you actually have earned at the time. but it's a, look, there's -- i think on the
started over three decades and for the three decades with a number of bad sectors. like a lot of cities, states and school districts around the country. on my first new year i didn't continue those practices which was a mistake. the difference is when we got into we may change. we are to outside auditors to tell us what was wrong and how to fix it. we banned under funds would pay the full payment now. we asked employees to step up and a higher cost other benefits. we held the line on raises. most folks haven't had raises. i negotiate a new pension system for new employees that was a the $23 million a year. at the end of our decade, the sec's own mother called san diego a model for other cities to follow. that's a stark contrast to congress which a look at a model for anything. >> moderator: i will have to ask you to wrap up. tragic if you took out the problem why did the voters have to dash and issued in by 60% what she didn't learn your lesson. with any of leaving the council, he went to the district and made a motion that include consideration of underfunding the retirement program. p
for the first time, the number of swing states among the ohio. let me take a venture and guess and say that they're not going to be visiting inner cities very much. now take a look at the romney strategy and they're all over the map. why are they all over the map? because they literally have to be all over the map. george bush carried ohio with about 50.5% of the vote in 2004. john mccain lost it with 46.1%. if you look at where the difference is, the drop, basically romney wins this state if he equals the bush percentage. romney -- the bush percentage dropped most in three media markets. toledo, columbus and cincinnati. those are the three places where he needs to pick up ground where he lost. and the second thing he needs to do is sustain the ground that they kept. the three west virginia markets, mccain actually outpolled bush. the youngstown media market, mccain ran virtually even. so you see the early trips are in rural area to sustain, try to get their vote back, in west virginia and young towns market to try and keep the vote they had. and today romney will make three stops in ohio. is go
